Civilization Battle Royale: The Novel, Chapter 7 – The Tasmanian Affair

Another week, another chapter. This time we return our gaze to the beautiful coast of South East Australia, where Henry Parkes is building his empire. As always, the chapter is available on the page for the project, in various eBook formats as well as in the form of an individual chapter release for those who want to dive straight into the action.

The Last Echo: New short story is now on shelves

15094479_1836745846537311_3986370375412435928_nIts true- after almost two years of random tinkering, The Last Echo is finally out and available to all. I actually wrote the original version back in 2014, and randomly tinkered with it for a further year and a half. The story was selected for the second issue of Ohio-based sci fi magazine JAMM (Just a Minor Malfunction), and is now available on Amazon worldwide.

Subject Echo awakes in a ruined city, long abandoned, with no memory of how she got there. Follow her in her search for the truth, and uncover what happened to the forgotten civilization…

The story received an editing spree from the highly skilled Michael S. Alter, and it promises to be quite the cracker.

Civilization Battle Royale: The Novel, Chapter 6 – The Prophecy

It’s the sixth chapter of our epic, for which we turn our gaze over to Mexico as the Battle Royale continues. As always, check out the page for the project for the latest events in the ongoing AI battle.

In other news, the second issue of Ohio Sci-fi magazine was launched today, containing a short by yours truly. The Last Echo is among the stories contained within those pages. The Amazon links for international readers should be going up any day now, so I’ll post here with more information when those are available. Till then, stay tuned!

Civilization Battle Royale: The Novel, Chapter 5 – On Black Shores

This week is chapter five, On Black Shores, our heartily awaited first Henry Morgan chapter. For newbies to the exciting craze that is Civilization Battle Royale, he be the leader of the Buccaneers. I had an excellent writing session for this project today, and completed almost an entire chapater of material in one sitting! As always, you can check out the book on the page for the project.

Civilization Battle Royale: The Novel, Chapter 4 – Across the Ridge

Another chapter from the continually running epic that is Civilization Battle Royale. This week is chapter four: Across the Ridge, during which we move our gaze a little further east to behold Sparta. As always, you can check that out on the page for the project.

New Computer!

So, last week I constructed a new computer. It’s… a tad powerful. Suffice to say I was rather excited for the arrival of all of the components- a GTX 1080, i5 6600k, 32GB of InsaneX Ram… The Ninjabeast III went together surprisingly quickly- with the exception of the secondary hard drive everything worked on my first attempt, which is lovely to see. With the computer 95% functional, I got it running Doom last night with maximum settings. It didn’t even blink at the heavy load; it’s incredible.
The Ninjabeast was originally put together in 2010, and has been upgraded and tinkered with almost constantly since. This is a major upgrade, but even so it still contains a few hard drives and cables from that first incarnation. The spare bits leftover from the upgrade have now formed a second computer called the Dragon, which my partner uses so that we can play together.
Looking forward to playing Civilization VI along with many other games on the latest incarnation of the ‘beast.
